For some reason Bluewater Comics has decided that November is perfect to publish two comics we wrote over the last couple of years. Both of these books were originally intended to be 4-issue mini-series, but for various reasons, they've become stand-alone graphic novels.
Quatermain has art by the wonderful Patricio Carbajal.
It Came From Beneath the Sea...Again has art by Chris Noeth (first half of the book) and the very original and unusual Todd Tennant (second half of the book).
Christmas gifts for the WHOLE FAMILY!

We just printed out the entire first draft manuscript of our second Vampire Empire novel. Now we begin RE-WRITING! There is nothing more fun than editing a manuscript, recognizing problems and fixing them, cutting the fat, sharpening the narrative, tightening the themes. Perhaps after reading 3 or 4 drafts, you might tire of your own words. But the first complete read-through is great fun when you see the spots that work, but not so fun when you see the spots that don't!
And, yes, we edit on paper. We simply have to have the words on a sheet of paper, with pen in hand, to really get a feel for it. The people who make ink for printers make a lot of money off of us.
